Having all that covered, the next thing we want to share with you guys is our experience with our personal preference out of these 3 belts. For us that is our combat belt setup, but we’re curious about what you guys think. Do you like the “gun belt setup”, the “combat belt setup” or the “warbelt setup” most? Let us know in the comments which you prefer.
Moving on, as mentioned earlier, this combat belt setup is my brother’s belt which he has already used on several occasions and this already brought up some feedback.
The first and most noticeable thing for him was the ease of attaching the outer belt on the inner belt and the retention it brings compared to similar belts systems. We already said in our previous videos, the Velcro® hooks on these are something we’ve only seen on some of Direct Action® their products, and they work very well although they are less aggressive on other fabric materials, like your pants.
A thing where he’s really a fan of, are the magazine pouches and to be fair, we’re both really impressed with these. Even so, that we can say these are most likely amongst the best open top magazine designs on the market these days. They’re not cheap, but they are worth every buck in our eyes.
As for the dump pouch, we cannot share that much, simply because my brother hasn’t used it that much yet.
Going to the med pouch, something he immediately noticed is that this one doesn’t bump onto your butt when running around, due to its horizontal design. You also don’t have the problem of hitting the pouch with your feet when taking a knee. And above that, although you can’t carry a lot in this one, it is a pretty good low profile setup for carrying a trauma kit.
And at last for the tourniquet pouch, he mentioned there’s nothing bad to say about this one either. It holds the tourniquet really well, keeps it clean and protected and thanks to its horizontal positioning never interferes with your legs when mounted up front. Only a way to attach a marker would have been a nice addition.
And with that all said, we have come to an end with this blog. For you guys that are looking for one of these setups, you can only get them through shop.reconbrothers.com with an all-year around discount. The colors we currently offer for these are Crye™’s Multicam®, Coyote Brown, Ranger Green and Black.
Something new we want to mention at last is that from now on, above the fact that the camo versions are NIR treated, all the plain colors from Direct Action® products are IRR treated to help reduce your infrared profile if you want to consider that type of stuff.
